Consumer reviews and reports on scam companies, bad products and services run by Cohen Strachan Investment (in Liquidation) fraudulent and illegal extortion website, Internet
3rd of Jul, 2011 by User925185
is a fraudulent, illegal and extortion based website used by Larry Pickering who is the shadow director behind a company called Cohen Strachan Investment Pty Ltd ACN 123 995 326. Cohen Strachan Investment had a registered office at 'Burleigh Office Park' building 6, Level 1, 5 Executive Drive Burleigh Heads QLD 4220 and went into Liquidation on 15/11/2010 appointed by KordaMentha. Moments before Cohen Strachan Investment had their computers seized by KordaMentha they removed the hard drives to erase any trace of evidence. Cohen Strachan Investment and its directors have been reported to ASIC for breach of the Corporations Act and further investigation is continuing with impending prosecution.. Cohen Strachan Investment sold a piece of market trading software called Carbon A which never worked because it was copied from another manufacturer and rebranded as their own. When consumers demanded refunds and (some) commenced legal action against the company Cohen Strachan Investment started posting slanderous, false and misleading information about those people on its own website ( Some of these victims include whistle blowers and former employees. Cohen Strachan Investment have changed hosting companies at least 3 times since it was created on 07-Mar-2008 and they have done this for several reasons, one of the being that each time a victim would write to the then-hosting company legitimising their claim the hosting provider would discover that the victims claims were true and would subsequently shut down so Cohen Strachan Investment kept jumping ship every time they were closed down by each hosting company. Whoever is reading this report, please note that the operators of are under investigation by a NSW police licensed private investigator for being involved in a serious internet fraud matter relating to a group of criminals located on the Gold Coast, Australia. supposedly represents consumers who have been ripped off or scammed by Australians but all of these allegations made against the 'scammers' are totally false, misleading and designed to cause harm and embarrassment to their social and business lifestyles. Before you consider the legitimacy of the postings made against any person on I urge you to consider the following: 1- Some of the postings made on are racist, use foul language and have serious accusations against people being rapists and sex offenders without any evidence from the person making the claims, is this the professional image of a website you would base your trust on? 2- There is no verification process for the accusations being made, if someone was going to list you as a a person who spent time in prison for fraud or a sex offender shouldn't that information be suppressed by law? flaunt that information for everyone to see, despite the fact that its probably not true but they don't care. 3- The website is claiming to be Australian based and protecting Australians consumers yet its hosted in America. The reason they have done this is to overcome any legal action by Australian law firms so they use international web hosting providers to make legal recourse almost impossible. 4- A real 'consumer protection' website would not contain explicit and racist postings made by anonymous individuals rather they would only contain lawful and accurate content in the best interests of the consumer with some form of access to the publisher 5- All of the posts made have false or anonymous names where the people posting those articles cannot be contacted to verify the authenticity of those claims, this alone should be a cause for suspicion 6- do not contain a single thread of negative information about Carbon A or Cohen Strachan Investment because these are the people (and product) behind and they use it to their advantage; search it yourself and you will see 7- are willing to charge to a $5,000 fee to remove any negative content on your name
but "won't guarantee that it won't appear again and you will have to go through the whole process (and pay for it) again". What does this tell you "between the lines"? The links below show that other people have also experienced false accusations against their names on : ( So in conclusion, please reconsider the perception you may make against anyone listed on these various ripoff websites because in this case, most of those websites are operated by organised crime groups and that's what you may be basing your judgment and perception on, a product of organized crime! Feel free to post your experience below the more feedback we can get on this subject then the more we can discredit these illegal websites or contact me anytime for further information at

Hi, I recently posted a report on OZ Rip Off Site about a company I became suspicious about after investing in their horse betting software. The company was told about my complaint by a potential client and the General Manager called me. Subsequently, after speaking with him, I received a full refund as I didn't feel comfortable with the investment. I have contacted the sites mangers asking them to remove the post and verified I was wrong in my judgement about the company and that they weren't the usual scammers that ran away with your money. I have written about twenty times in my plea to get the posts removed but have not had a reply. I became suspicious of the site after realising they had little integrity and weren't trying to protect Australians or businesses, they just weren't doing the right thing and I told them so. Now I can't get onto the site. And I'm suddenly seeing many negative posts about them over the internet which when I was researching them I only found one negative report by a 'former employee' or so he said. It looks as if they;ve removed the site and disappeared or that they have blocked me from accessing it. Interesting and appears to back--up your statement, above. I don't trust anyone at this point.
